Kirby Dach is happy with the Montreal Canadiens and is optimistic about his future. "I just think it's a combination of everything," he said, as quoted by nhl.com His teammates, left-wing Cole Caufield and center Nick Suzuki, are an important link of the team.
"Cole's a shooter, but he also makes a lot of great plays; Nick's pretty responsible defensively, understands the game and thinks it pretty well," Dach said. "At the same time, he's scoring goals right now. He makes really, really smart plays and the combination of all three of our skill sets and the way we see the ice and think the game, it just matches up pretty perfectly."
Dach vs Blackhawks
Today Dach has a match with the Blackhawks.
He has only fond memories of the club where he achieved a lot. "It's the place where I bought my first house, bought my first car, so it definitely holds a special place in my heart," he said. "It'll be cool to see some of the guys and the training staff.
It'll be nice to get it over with, too but at the end of the day, it's definitely marked on my calendar and I'm looking forward to it." Chicago forward Patrick Kane had only words of praise for Dach and the potential he possesses.
"I know he's had some success there with Suzuki and Caufield, so you know, he's got a lot of potential if you put him with the right players," Kane said. "He's a young guy, the more experience he gets the better he's going to be.
Happy to see him doing well and playing a big role there. "I always liked paying with him, too. He's a big strong centerman (6-foot-4, 212 pounds) who plays both ends of the rink, he can play with speed up the middle, he can play puck possession. He's going to be a good player for a long time in the League."
